How I saw it
29 October 2007 | by vl4700See all my reviews

First a long passage in New York, the first graffiti, the tags, the pieces (or however it is correctly named), the gangs, the people, the evolution. Paris, an artist, the groups in the streets, what they feel. Amsterdam, Barcelona, Hamburg, London, Berlin, São Paulo, Tokyo, Los Angeles. How to express yourself, how you evolved, what people think, why they do it, how does it fit around you. I advise you to see it with your eyes really open because there are some really funny moments that just pass by most of the people, like when some really common big advertisements show up in the streets. I found the documentary really interesting in general.
